Inspired by the true story that rocked the town of Roslyn, NY in 2004 and garnered attention nationwide, Bad Education centers on the stunning impact and aftermath of a multi-million dollar embezzlement scheme. The darkly comical film highlights the deficiencies of the public education system in the U.S. while examining the broader forces that foster greed, corruption and lack of accountability in our institutions.
Bad Education follows Frank Tassone (Jackman) and Pam Gluckin (Janney), who reign over a popular Long Island school district on the verge of the nation's top spot, spurring record college admissions and soaring property values. Between them, they racked up over $11.2 million dollars in extravagant personal expenses.
"Bad Education is a fascinating tale of greed and corruption that's superbly written and directed, with stellar performances by Hugh Jackman and Allison Janney," said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. She added, "It's a truly exceptional film that has resonated with critics and viewers, and we are delighted to make it available to own on Blu-ray. Fans won't want to miss the opportunity to add this outstanding film to their home entertainment collections."
